Joey Beret

Biography

Joey, aka me, is now a bit older than the young man in that picture, i am now happily hitting middle age having battled my way through an eventful and often challenging life. Writing is an important part of my person, as are the books that surround me in my countryside home in West Wales. I am no longer a man of great ambition as i have had a stab at most things that i wanted to explore:music, politics, women, the usual things. I am a happy man with many wonderful friends that i have tagged onto along the way and a scattering of fantastic offspring, as well as a wife with whom i will be honoured to grow old. I would like to think that my written work contains some moments of quality, observation and honesty that will provide some moments of pleasure to the reader and perhaps even capture in words some thoughts that we may share.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
"Life is an occasion - rise to it". i love that quote, it stops me being lazy and inspires me to make the most of my time, which does often involve sleeping, but more often than not i manage to find a bit more to it than that!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a full time job which requires close relationships with my clients and would possibly be affected if they read my books, so i can't say what it is, though it is just a normal job. I take every opportunity to spend time with my family and to support and encourage them, maybe in a way that i feel was missing from my earlier life.............

If Tommy Jones met Jesus drinking in a bar, who would have the greatest stories? In this book Tommy tells his story to Jesus and to us: some of us recognise the story, some of us pretend we don't.
